Lokomotiv Moscow vs Ufa
Russian Premier League
Date: Sunday, 26 May 2019
Kick-Off 12:00 UK / 13:00 CET
Venue: RZD Arena (Moscow).
Lokomotiv Moscow need a victory over relegation-threatened Ufa in the last game of the season to book a place in the group stage of the Champions League next season.
The new Russian Cup winners are currently lock on points with Krasnodar, but beat them on head to head record (away goals scored in H2H matches), meaning they have the second-place destiny entirely in their own hands coming into this last round fixture.
Loko will generally come into it in the highest of spirits. They saw off Ural 1-0 on Wednesday night to lift the Russian Cup trophy.
They had a subpar campaign this season given the team were far away from a genuine title contention in the Premier League, bur the season could still be marked as successful with a runners-up finish.
Lokomotiv Moscow vs Ufa: Head-to-head
Loko lead the head to head tie by two wins, but they are winless in past three meetings with Ufa (three draws and one defeat).
None of last six official head to head matches between these two likes saw two or more goals scored.
There were no goals scored at all in past two league clashes between these two outfits.
Lokomotiv Moscow vs Ufa: Prediction
Ufa were struggling badly o adjust to life without the head coach Sergei Semak throughout the entire season basically.
Gorozhane will not finish their campaign on Sunday as they will feature relegation play-offs in the post-season.
It is a massive downfall if we know the team finished the previous Premier League term at sky-high 6th-place (featured Europa League football as well).
Ufa have one of the weakest attacking records in the entire league. They only scored 24 goals in 29 matches.
They head into this off the back of two consecutive losses to Spartak Moscow and Orenburg and they failed to find the back of the net in the process.
Lokomotiv are massive favourites and we just can’t see them dropping the ball in such an important match.
